Ever had someone who let their domain expire accuse you of stealing it when you register it? If you have been in the business more than a month or two, the answer will be "yes". In a hilarious new column at DNJournal.com, our advice columnist, Dear Domey gets to the bottom of the cybersquatting issue. Trust me, you will not want to miss this! I am saving it as an email template to answer people who send me those "how did you steal my domain" messages! Check it out through the link below:

I contacted the Office of Domainland Security and told them I had a score
of 21.

They told me to go to Las Vegas.
And ,then they hung up.

At first I had no idea what you were talking about Richard (assumed you had gone stir crazy with your family away at the horse show). Then I remembered we keep 3 Domey articles on his page. I had forgotten about that poll at the bottom - probably because I scored worse than you! :)

I love his new cybersquatter skit - that really nails the people I hear from to a "T".

Thanks Wolfis. Just so proper credit is given - I had nothing to do with writing it. Dear Domey is from the fertile mind of Bob Connor (known and loved by everyone in the business by his forum handle - Domebase).

One thing I like about this is how much truth there is in it. In this case the newspaper prints the guy's cybersquatting allegation even though it is completely ludicrous. That just happened in real life a few days ago when a major Chicago newspaper printed a headline calling Kerry Edwards a cybersquatter. That's the guy who registered his own name years before there was a Kerry-Edwards presidential ticket and they accuse him of being a cubersquatter!
